Poland has filed a complaint against the European Union’s copyright directive

The Council of the European Union has formally approved this directive in April and will enter into force on June 7, 2019. The EU member states will enact their laws by June 7, 2021, to implement them.

Users on platforms such as Facebook, Google, YouTube, Wikipedia, and others are afraid that instructions can be harmful to the way they use the site. If you make an effort to remove content that infringes copyright, such as music or pirated movies, you are not responsible for hosting. The site must now actively ensure that copyrighted content is not posted on the site. As James Vincent and Russell Brandom pointed out last year, the site may need to implement filters that become accustomed to the abuse of copyright trolls and will make millions of mistakes. There is no technology to scan Internet content in this way. "
